Forget about the fourth check! It is better to focus on what is already a reality and it is a fact that many families will receive more money anyway with the aid package approved by President Biden in the American Rescue Plan.
It’s been almost a month since the Senate approved the new economic stimulus package that included a check for $ 1,400 for adults and dependents. Most of these payments have already reached the pockets of the people eligible for the aid or will arrive very soon, but what about the other aids that the Biden plan contemplated?
Forget the fourth check! Many families will receive more money anyway
Don’t wait for a fourth check, because so far it is unlikely to happen. Instead, in addition to the $ 1,400 stimulus check, the Senate approved other grants that could be very useful to your family in these times of pandemic.
If you have children, for example, you don’t have to wait for a new aid package as you will most likely be entitled to another payment. Of course, these funds are not being distributed immediately as the third check, but would begin to reach the beneficiaries in early July.
More money for the Child Tax Credit than for the check
In March, lawmakers approved a major modification to the American Rescue Plan in the Child Tax Credit And the question is: How can a family benefit from this change? Let’s see…
Previously, the Child Tax Credit was for a maximum of $ 2,000 and only part of it was refundable. Now, the tax credits reach $ 3,600 for parents of children under 6 years of age and $ 3,000 for parents of children over 6 years of age.
Who qualifies for the Child Tax Credit?
Unfortunately there are limits and not everyone can qualify. Eligibility for this Child Tax Credit will depend on your income. However, there are no limits on the number of children you can claim, he reported. Fool.
That is, if a couple has 2 children over the age of 6 then they would receive $ 6,000, or if a couple has 3 children under the age of 6 then they would receive a tax aid of $ 10,800, much more than with the stimulus check!
When will help arrive?
As stipulated in the American Rescue Plan, part of the money must be paid to the parents as an advance. In other words, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) does not have to wait for parents to claim help on a tax return.
The legislation also agrees that parents must receive the money between july and december in periodic payments. For now, the IRS has focused on attending tax season at the same time it distributes the third aid check and with respect to the Child Tax Credit they have only indicated that they hope to deliver it “as soon as possible.”
How will help arrive?
The IRS has not provided a schedule or specified how it will send paychecks. Although it is clear that, since an advance will be delivered, parents will receive during 2020 in periodic payments half of the total amount that corresponds to them. The family will have to claim the other half when they file their tax return next year (2022).
Another good news is that Democrats hope that this credit will become permanent and that it will be repeated year after year. It is not yet something that is approved to be sustained over time, but if it were, it would become an important help for families with children.
IRS released some 24 million direct deposit checks on April 7
The Internal rents service (IRS) released some 24 million aid checks through direct deposit this Wednesday, April 7, as reported in a statement. So if you haven’t received your payment, this could be a good day to check if you already have the $ 1,400 in your bank account that is due to you.
“The fourth batch of payments began processing on Friday, April 2, with official payment date of April 7, and some people received direct payments into their accounts before as provisional or pending deposits, “the agency said on its website.
Who will receive their third check in this fourth batch of shipments?
The people who will receive their third check in this fourth batch are mostly Social Security beneficiaries. But they were not the only ones, the money will also come to beneficiaries of Supplemental Security Income and the Railroad Retirement Board.
This fourth lot also includes ‘adjustment’ checks. “This batch includes additional supplemental payments in progress for individuals who received payments based on their 2019 tax returns in early March, but are eligible for a new or higher payment based on their recently processed 2020 tax returns.” .
Other beneficiaries who will receive their payment today
Also receive your check today more than 1 million citizens for whom the IRS had no information previously to issue a payment. “They recently filed tax returns and qualified for economic impact payments,” so the agency wrote the check that corresponds to them.
“This fourth batch of payments includes almost 24 million direct deposit payments and more than 1 million paper check payments ”, they explained. “In total, this lot includes more than 25 million payments, with a total value of more than $ 36,000 million dollars ”.
